David Brophy targets Zach Parker ahead of Glasgow outing

RINGSIDE 21/11/2018

Former Commonwealth king David Brophy is keen to signal his intent to British super-middleweight champion Zach Parker in Glasgow on November 30.

Brophy (20-2-1-KO4) suffered his only two career defeats to world champions George Groves and Rocky Fielding and as he prepares to star on MTK Global’s Scottish extravaganza, the popular Caldercruix fighter has already set a target for next year.

Brophy said: “Guys like Zach Parker and Daryll Williams are definitely the kind of fights I’m after in 2019. I’ve always wanted that British title.

“Apart from the elite fighters at this weight, I have no problem with taking on anyone. There are plenty of good fighters around in this division and I’m one of them.

“The only two defeats I’ve had were to two guys who went on to win world titles. It doesn’t make taking the defeat any easier but it’s good to know it takes a top fighter to beat me.

“I’ve never said ‘no’ to a fight and I’ve fought people who, on paper, I wasn’t ready for but I feel it’s all combined to make me a better fighter in the long run. It allows me to see the level I want to be at.

“The lad I stopped last time I out – Norbert Szekeres – was as hard as nails. Some of the body shots I hit him with hurt my hands, let alone his ribs! I’m hoping for another fight in which I can put my shots together.”

Brophy takes his place on a card that includes Iain Butcher challenging Ukashir Farooq for the British bantamweight title, Kieran Smith and Evaldas Korsakas facing off for the WBC International Silver super-welterweight crown, Tyrone McKenna vs. Lewis Benson and much more.
